how to clean the gunk?
You know, the gunk between the teats? I just usually use my fingers, but I know that there is a better way to do it! Any suggestions?

I just use my fingers too and give them a good scrub during a bath. Someone suggested baby wipes. I thought that sounded a lot better then the stinky fingers method :lol:

I also always used my fingers when I cleaned my mare's. ;)
Baby wipes could work, why couldn't I have thought of that? LOL!! It's probably better.

I always use my hands also. Sure you could use baby wipes, a wash cloth, an old rag, a soft bristle brush. But you can't get at it the way you do with your fingers.

Ok. I was kinda thinking that the fingers was the best way...but I just can't get it all! And my mare loves it so much....

My vet tells me to use dishsoap and warm water.

Excaliber works great for cleaning between the teats as well the "boy parts" :D i always use hat with a washcloth whenver i bathe my mares. it works good and doesnt leave any residue that sop can.

We use Tuck's Medicated Pads, which are a feminine wipe for soothing things like urinary tract infections.
